Ikea Haul Under Rs.1000 - Small Upgrades To My Home

Most of you must know that apart from the physical store in Hyderabad and one more coming up at Navi Mumbai, Ikea also sells online in Mumbai. I have been stalking their amazing range and to try out their quality, bought 5 things that costed me a total of less than Rs.1000 (yes, a TOTAL of Rs.1000 for 5 products) that helped me in small or not so small ways!

1. BENĂ– Chair pad Rs.149

I have a cane stool at home that had some parts poking out, making it uncomfortable to sit. This chair pad easily got tied to the stool, and a cheap but very comfortable option to make the stool usable! It's been a couple of weeks since we're using it, so far so good!


2. SCHOTTIS Pleated blind, white, 90x190 cm Rs.199

Perfect to block out view without giving up on the sunlight. Needed a temporary option for the bathroom till we figure out what to do. Also, you can cut it to whatever size required. And it's a no-drill option. It's not very durable though - it's very paper like (though made of polyester) so not sure how long it will last. But serves my purpose wonderfully for the price.


3. PRESSA - Hanging dryer 16 clothes pegs, turquoise Rs.299

I guess this is not unique or innovative and you may get similar things elsewhere, but I love both the colour and the quality - it's very sturdy and clip quality is great too. Something every house needs for drying smaller items like socks, undies, hankies and so on.


4. BOLMEN Toilet brush/holder, white Rs.79

A toilet brush, with a stand - that looks stylish, just for Rs.79. What more should I say.


5. RINNIG Dish-washing brush, green Rs.89

Really cute looking small brushes to clean dishes - available in three colours - mint green, black and pink. They can be kept standing too. Infact I think it can be used anywhere, not just for the utensils. My only worry is that the bristles are too coarse and I am scared it may scratch the crockery. Yet to try it on expensive kitchen utensils.

So 5 things for a total of Rs.815 and Rs.99 delivery it costed me Rs.914 for these tiny upgrades to my home. I have so many things wishlited on their website, things are really thought through and you will be amazed at the solutions they have for all your home related problems, if you want to call it that.

P.S. This post is not sponsored by Ikea in any way, and is just a review I wanted to share with you all.
